US Representative Jose E. Serrano, the longest serving local congressman proudly announces that the US Department of Education is funding grants for Upward Bound Programs at Fordham and BCC for the coming year and perhaps for the next five years.

BCC will reportedly be receiving $ 479,000 and Fordham U. is earmarked for $379,000. These programs help prepare students in undeserved communities to academically prepare when they arrive to their higher education institution.
